I've never used Cyanogen before so if I'm missing something obvious feel free to let me know.
But, I installed the latest build and I have no market.
I can only assume I missed something somewhere but I don't know what or why I wouldn't have it. Help please
Factory reset is the only thing I've seen reinstall the market. Maybe someone else has a better idea..?
Do you have all the other Google Apps?
My guess would be that your Google Apps are gone.
You can download them at Latest Version/Google Apps - CyanogenMod Wiki .
Flash it as you would any other .zip.
See if that works. If you already did do GAPPS...then I have no clue.
I did one before I installed but I will try another and see if that helps. I hope one of these two ideas work because so far, this is one of two ROMs that I can flash onto my phone without having problems. And I haven't downloaded the google apps yet and I hadn't yet because I was gonna see how this runs on my phone because my replacement has issues with just about every ROM made with overheating. I didn't think it would take away my market but I will definitely try it.
While I have you two guys here(somewhat off topic), but are either of you familiar with Metamorph?
EDIT: It also didn't prompt me to sign into my Google account or take me through any of the steps at start up either. But I'm unfamiliar with how Cyanogen works but to me that was pretty unusual. I also tried signing in in the settings but it was set up different asking about domains and what not
I tried to figure MM out once and it was over my head. Never heard of a ROM causing the market to disappear and Google problems. Did you make a backup first?

Market is a GAPP so that would make sense if you don't have them not to see it. If you still have Maps/Navigation etc, then you do have GAPPS.
To sign into your Google Account, go into Settings --> Accounts and Sync-->> Add Account-->> Google Account.
If you havn't downloaded GAPPS, and did a full wipe before coming to CM, then that is probably the problem.
I've used MM a little bit, maybe I can help. Whats the question? :)
Oh, and YOU DID do a full wipe prior to installing CM right?
Haha yeah, I'm wanting to learn. I watched a video and it had some nice perks but apparently you have to download certain themes or something. I'm not sure. Hopefully I'll figure that out so I can choose what to theme and what not.

So, the one before this I had pretty much just flashed so I didn't lose anything and it's still on my card for easy access
Metamorph , from my small knowledge, breaks down the theme's into parts. It also doesnt matter the ROM with MM.
I've only used it for the Droid 2 Glowing Battery Icon.
Basically download a MM theme, and open metamorph, find the .zip open it. Then pick what parts(or all) of it and hit apply.
The GAPPS it was. Thank you! Both of you. And that's what I tried doing but when I would try to sign it, it was trying to do an exchange email with domains rather than my google account. But now that I have the GAPPS it let me install properly. Seems like a lot to keep up. Constant nightly builds, updated GAPPS, etc. But, if it works on my phone, it's worth it. Does anyone even make themes for this since it updates so much?

They kept getting error messages, etc, so are there only certain themes that you can use for metamorph? He made it sound like you could download whatever them you pleased. I also read a tutorial on how to use it and it was many more times complicated than the video so that confuses me a little bit if they're both that much different than one another
